Troopers stopped the car, saw signs of impairment in the driver, and screened her for driving under the influence. Police arrested Crystina B. Hulst, 39, of Salisbury and cited her for driving under the influence of drugs and for resisting arrest because she actively resisted troopers’ efforts to place her in handcuffs.
